Global Dispute Resolution
Prof. Dr Julia Lübke, LL.M. (Harvard)
In an increasingly globalized economy, international commercial, investment and regulatory disputes are on the rise. A profound knowledge of international dispute resolution is therefore indispensable to any lawyer working in global business.
We will explore the risks and challenges of multinational disputes before (regular) courts, focusing on how such risks can be exposed and managed effectively. We will then take a profound look at alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, especially arbitration as an increasingly popular alternative to litigation. You will learn about the rules and practice of international commercial arbitration as well as investor-state dispute settlement.
Finally, we will assess the challenges that a growing number of regulatory requirements poses for international disputes. The course will provide you with the tools you need should a business transaction turn contentious.
